No time to make a homemade soup? Think again! You'll be ladling out steamy bowls of this satisfying chowder from Sarah McClanahan of Raleigh, North Carolina in no time. Canned corn and crab blend beautifully in the creamy colorful soup, she says. "It's truly one of the best I've ever tasted."
"this is a great dish when you need a meal in a hurry," promises Sharon Gentert of Wendell, Idaho. "We like to make it with mushroom soup, but you can change the ingredients to accommodate your family's tastes and whatever items you have on hand."
Shelly Platten of Amherst, Wisconsin shares this thick Southwestern-style chowder that's seasoned with salsa, lime juice and cumin. "I first made this for a special lunch with my daughter," Shelly writes. "We like it with gourmet-style tortilla chips."
THIS RECIPE has been a favorite in our family for years. Now that we have an empty nest, I took it upon myself to cut the recipe down to serve two so we can still enjoy it. The jalapeno adds a little zip and color!

This rich, creamy chowder is so good you won't believe it starts with canned soup and frozen vegetables. It showcases tender chunks of halibut, but salmon or most any type of whitefish will do. I double the recipe for large gatherings, and guests almost lick the pot clean!—Mary Davis, Palmer, Alaska
My grandmother and mother made this dish to warm their families during the cold winter months. Nothing chased away a chill like this chowder!
